Ohio Right to Work Laws
The prevelance of labor unions along America's Rust Belt. So-called "right-to-work laws," however, are less common. These statutes protect the rights of non-union workers to find and secure employment.
So while unions contract with employers (including state and local governments), such laws attempt to strike a balance by prohibiting both employers and unions from denying a job based on union status. Ohio, with its long history of labor unions, does not currently have a right to work law.
However, the following links and resources should help you get acquainted with labor and employment laws generally in Pennsylvania.
|Policy on Union Membership, Organization, etc.||None stated.|
|Prohibited Activity||Any agreement between employer and employee in which either party agrees to join, quit, or remain a part of a labor organization as a condition of employment is "contrary to public policy and void."|
